Rittenhouse Square on Film

Every Summer I love borrowing my dad's film SLR camera. He has an Olympus from 1979 and he let me use it for a photography class in 2013. Since then, I made it a tradition to take it out a few times a year and shoot with film. I love film.

On June 24, I decided to go to Rittenhouse Square Park after work and before Art After 5 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Rittenhouse Square Park is one of my favorite parks in Philadelphia: I love Billy (a golden goat statue), watching the children play by Billy, the animals that walk by. Rittenhouse Square is perfect for pictures.

This man sitting on the ledge is a religious chess player. He's always playing chess when I visit.


Love Billy!

Really cool drawing from a child.

Someone was selling his bubble mix. I loved watching him blow bubbles. I had to buy my own wand.

The following pictures are from when mom and I visited on July 3:

Mom took these two of me.

I've always loved black and white photography. I think it adds a depth that colour photography doesn't quite capture. Parks are one of my favorite places to capture on black and white film.
